How to install Blender 2.92 on Ubuntu 20.04, 20.10 via PPA

For those who prefer to install apps via the traditional apt method, you can now install Blender 2.92 on Ubuntu 20.04, Ubuntu 20.10, and Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04 via PPA.

The open source 3D modeler software Blender 2.92 was released a few days ago. It features a whole new workflow for editing meshes, new physics simulation methods, faster Cycles rendering, better compositing with Eevee, and more.

Blender offers an official Snap package that runs in the sandbox and can be installed directly from the Ubuntu software. You can also download the Linux portable package from its website. For those who like the classic deb package, Thomas Schiex PPA Created for Ubuntu 20.04 and Ubuntu 20.10 users.

1. Add Blender PPA.

First, open a terminal from the system application launcher. Once open, run the command to add the PPA.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thomas-schiex/blender

Enter your user password when prompted and there is no asterisk feedback. Press Enter to continue.

The PPA does not support Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 18.04, but another PPA does. However, the updated library requires some more PPA. Description of PPA For more information.

2. Install or update Blender.

If you have installed an older version of the Blender package via the apt method, open Software Updater (Update Manager) to update the software.

Upgrade to Blender 2.79

Alternatively, run the command in the terminal to install / update the package.

sudo apt update

sudo apt install blender

3. Fix the missing libLLVM-6.0.so.1 issue.

Blender 2.92 doesn’t start on my Ubuntu 20.04 and prints an error when running from a terminal.

/ usr / lib / blender / blender: error loading shared library: libLLVM-6.0.so.1: unable to open shared object file: no such file or directory

This can be easily fixed by running the following command:

sudo apt install libllvm6.0

I’m not sure if the problem exists in Ubuntu 20.10. libllvm6.0 Not available in Groovy repositories.

Uninstall:
